There was once a time, not so long ago, when scientists like Casey Holliday needed scalpels, scissors and even their own hands to conduct anatomical research. But now, with recent advances in technology, Holliday and his colleagues at the University of Missouri are using artificial intelligence (AI) to see inside an animal or a person—down to a single muscle fiber—without ever making a cut.

Holliday, an associate professor of pathology and anatomical sciences, said his lab in the …
